A Victorian building believed to have once been a “Coffee Tavern” will be refurbished and extended to provide a block of flats at 28 Arklow Road in Deptford.
14 flats will be included.
The building is currently known as Safa House and in the midst of much development.
Just west is a 336-home development including a 22-floor tower located where rail lines converge on the way to London Bridge.
Though now in poor shape, the building is a welcome site in the area which has seen much of its heritage swept away. It offers a pleasing contrast to new builds in the area.
The architects are Barron Edwards.
